Combine Coach's Overall Comments
David would really benefit from PDL experience. He needs to improve his physical abilities, which are currently average. He has a great work ethic however, and highly coachable. He has some decent skills in small spaces, but needs more games at a higher level.

Collegiate Soccer Career
Head Coach: Steffen Siebert

Career: Three-year captain. Chessen finished an outstanding career at Springfield with another all-conference nod, marking the fourth time in four seasons he was named one of the conference's bests. Posted a pair of assists in his senior year while appearing in all 20 of Springfield's games. His dynamic and steady play in the midfield in 2012 was a major factor in the Pride appearing in its second-straight NEWMAC Championship contest
